Season 2 Episode 4: Unconditional Love & Mental Health
How can we start curing our mental health disorders? I definitely feel like I am on to something with this general idea of love being the cure.
Listen to what I think about this… here! https://open.spotify.com/episode/6dLPzI6fymtnFEqhrivpW0?si=kidrE9zrR8arlt3f4HfmDw
“The sad truth is that you can’t cure BPD with unconditional love. The problem isn’t that people with BPD don’t get enough love. The problem is that they feel such worthlessness and shame that they think they don’t deserve it. So your love encounters Teflon and slips away. But it’s difficult to face the worthlessness and shame and work on it, in therapy or out. All they know is they don’t feel loved, which means you must be doing something wrong.”
What Are You Afraid Of?
Fears, Mine & yours live within.
Mine, over time have combined and multiplied.
Fear can only live in the place without light,
It persuades you to give in, then surrender the fight.
I journey deeper to find what lurks there in the dark.
I see a long train tunnel, it is absent and cold.
My mind warns, “stay where it’s safe, do not go.”
My soul urges my spirit to go deeper, into the black.
Darkness has one job, conceal
Concealing my false from my real.
There is some value to be gained here, my spirit feels
I calm myself a bit, wait for my body to stop shaking.
The words written on these walls, exposing.
It appears someone has tracked all of my mistakes.
So what? I messed up, what difference does that make?
I feel the vibrations of something in the distance
My fear reappears to offer stubborn resistance.
Is someone driving this train?
I grab ahold of the last train car, and pull myself inside
I feel the train is moving slower now, down to a steady glide
Why did my train suddenly slow down here?
My final destination isn’t fear.
Within the darkness my fear takes hold
One thing is clear, to leave this place, I must be bold.
I rise and dust off the negativity
Realizing this new sensitivity
to myself and my power
I make my way through the train,after thousands of hours
I know I must make it to the front of the train
If only I could get this desire to move to my brain.
allowing my spirit forward, breaking free from my paralyzed state
I must reach the light, it is where I will meet my fate
Fear, Mine & yours live within.
All souls must struggle with sin
Spirit knows it can’t be kept in the shade.
I’ve found her, she is so bold and unafraid.
Her light is my light
Parts of who I was, exposed by the light
Exposing my dark traits so that my spirit will survive.
Stepping into the light can be a terrifying fear
That is also where you must steer.
Turn your way towards light, it shall set you free
Surrendering your truths leads to victory
An ongoing spiritual battle
is also our eternal war.
To win, we must lose.
And battle no more!
After living in darkness & wrestling with my demons daily…
I am strong enough now to handle the light!
Surrender to the largeness of who you’re becoming.
